Country Roads

From Canals to Clogs: See Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands on an 11-Day Guided Tour

This 11-day guided tour whisks you through scenic Belgium, Luxembourg and The Netherlands. In Luxembourg, indulge in a farm-to-table feast at the horse-stables-turned-restaurant L'Écurie du Parc, then stroll past the 12th-Century Clervaux Castle after dinner. Climb to the top of the star-shaped Mardasson Monument for a birds-eye view of the fields where the World War II’s Battle of the Bulge was fought. Cruise through Amsterdam’s canal district, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, sailing past 16th-Century merchant houses and the iconic Magere Brug — the skinny, white-painted wood bridge over the Amstel River. Later, join a Local Expert at the Rijksmuseum, where you can view Rembrandt's ‘Night Watch’, and see a shoemaker whittle wood into traditional clogs.

Itinerary idea in detail

Upon arrival at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport today, your driver will meet you for the half-hour private transfer to your hotel. Depending on your time of arrival, you may wish to start exploring the city. We recommend exploring on foot, immersing yourself in the diverse and multifaceted city with its canal-threaded landscape.

Amsterdam canal in the autumn

This morning is yours to spend as you wish before an afternoon exploring the stylish Jordaan district with a local private guide, either by bike or on foot. You’ll discover the postcard-worthy Nine Streets area, manicured courtyards and brick canal houses, and venture onto the Houseboat Museum, gathering insight into the city's local life.

Sunset in the Jordaan district

Leave Amsterdam and drive through the lowland countryside to Keukenhof Gardens, where you can wander the neatly manicured gardens, brimming with around seven million tulips, pungent hyacinths and daffodils. The tulip has become a loved symbol of the Netherlands, and the sleek flower is flaunted throughout the fields in true kaleidoscopic style. When you’ve finished here, you’ll continue southwards to The Hague.

The Hague skyline, Netherlands

Your first stop is in the city of Delft, whose well-preserved medieval old town and rich history provide many notable sites and quaint vistas to delve into. We’d recommend a spot of lunch in one of the city’s lively streets or various market squares. Next, you’ll visit the well-known Royal Delft factory for a private tour, followed by a hands-on workshop.

Tree lined park in The Hague, Netherlands

Depart The Hague and drive southwards, crossing into Belgium and on to Antwerp, where the city’s historic charm, modern downtown and large port blend seamlessly. You have free time here to wander where artists such as Rubens and Van Dyck once lived, taste signature local dishes or enjoy a boat ride on the Scheldt River. Following Antwerp, you’ll continue driving southwards to the lesser-known but worthwhile Liège.

Panoramic view over Liège, Belgium

You’ll be collected by your local guide for a private walking tour of Liège’s highlights, including the city’s opera house, Butcher’s Hall, Curtius House and the Cathedrale Saint Paul. While best known as a former industrial giant, Liège has a small but active historic district that mixes architecture and museums with a sense of everyday life. The afternoon is yours to meander the city or nearby areas such as Huy, Chateau de Modave, or Vervier.

Benedictine Abbey of Saint James, Liège

Leave Liège and spend today exploring the battle sites, museums and memorials related to the Battle of the Bulge, the last major German offensive in World War II. If you have any personal connection to the battle, let your specialist know in advance. We can attempt to tailor the tour to the relevant memorials and sites in the area. You’ll end your day by arriving in Luxembourg and settling into your city hotel for the evening.

Luxembourg City old town

Venture out to the Mullerthal Trail for a private hike through ‘Little Switzerland’. Made up of over 200-million-year-old rocks, caves and waterfalls, you’ll meander on trails through the national park’s lush and craggy forest, passing through caves and the tri-forked Schiessentümpel waterfall. After some lunch, you'll visit Luxembourg’s ornate Vianden Castle for a shared guided tour within its Romanesque walls and Gothic trimmings before returning to the city.

Little Switzerland, Luxembourg

You may have some time to spend in Luxembourg City this morning, depending on the time of your homeward flight. You’ll then drive to Luxembourg Airport where you return your hire car and board your onward flight.

Cathedral of the Blessed Virgin, Luxembourg

Dutch Indonesian Rijsttafel Dinner

Don't leave Amsterdam without trying a Rijsttafel (literally: “rice table”): many small, shareable dishes, ranging from mild to spicy, in all colors of the rainbow, served with rice. A result of the Dutch Colonization of Indonesia, it's now considered by many Dutch as their signature dish. Indonesia was formerly a treasured colony of the Netherlands and during this period the Dutch embraced the delicious Indonesian cuisine both at home and abroad. The Rijsttafel became a star on the menu.

After a leisurely start today, you explore Amsterdam, a living museum of the 17th century, yet still a vibrant metropolis and port. The best way to see this remarkable city is from the water as you cruise through the canal district, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Admire the elegant merchant houses from the 16th and 17th centuries, their facades are a reflection of when trade flourished during Amsterdam's Golden Age. Relax as you pass stunning gables, beautiful churches and the iconic Magere Brug, better known as the Skinny Bridge. Disembark your cruise to wander the city and see the floating flower market, Dam Square and the Royal Palace. The rest of the day is at your leisure. With your free time, perhaps venture out to the Dutch Countryside to the village of Marken?

The country occasionally experiences strong winds and storms during the winter months, with the possibility of snowfall, particularly in the eastern regions.

Belgium has a temperate maritime climate characterized by mild temperatures, moderate rainfall, and relatively high humidity. Winters are typically cool with average temperatures ranging from 0°C to 6°C (32°F to 43°F), while summers are mild with average temperatures between 12°C and 23°C (54°F to 73°F). Rainfall is evenly distributed throughout the year, with slightly drier months in spring and early autumn. The country is influenced by the North Sea, which helps moderate temperature extremes.

On-Tour Luggage & Carry-On Bag Size Limits

Luggage : Each guest traveling may bring one suitcase no larger than 30” x 18” x 10" and weighing no more than 50 lb

Carry-On Bag : *Restricted to one piece per person, not to exceed 12” x 11” x 6”

  • *Please note : A "carry-on bag" on a tour coach is not the same as a "carry-on" for a flight. Because our coaches have large windows to enjoy the view, there is minimal space to store large items securely overhead or under the seats. A "carry-on bag" may be a soft-sided daypack, purse, backpack, tote bag, or the like. Because we value our guests' safety, small rolling suitcases or bags with telescopic handles are not permitted. In order to guarantee a smooth trip, guests are not permitted to store an additional "carry-on" bag beneath the coach with the luggage. 

So your driver and any hotel porters can safely lift and transport your suitcase throughout your vacation, we strongly recommend that you test the weight of your baggage prior to travel. You should be able to lift and comfortably transport it for short distances. 

Baggage allowances vary from airline to airline, and you should check with your chosen carrier for details prior to travel.

Packing Tips for Your Tour

Packing for a guided tour will vary depending on the duration of the trip, the time of year, and the activities planned. Here is a general packing list to help you get started:

Passport and Travel Documents : Ensure you have your passport , travel insurance , and any necessary travel documents.

  • Comfortable walking shoes: Cobblestone streets and uneven terrain require comfortable footwear.
  • Lightweight, breathable clothing: Pack clothes suitable for the season. Bring a mix of short-sleeved tops, lightweight pants or skirts, and a few long-sleeved options for cooler evenings for the summer months, and long-sleeved and heavier layers for early Spring, Fall, and Winter.
  • Layers: It's advisable to bring a light jacket or sweater and a scarf for layering, especially in Spring or Fall.
  • Nice evening wear: You may wish to wear a dressier outfit if you plan on dining in an elegant restaurant, for example. Smart-casual clothes are usually acceptable for all included daytime and evening activities throughout your tour.
  • Rain Gear: Depending on the season and the countries you're visiting, it's a good idea to pack a compact rain jacket or umbrella.

Sun Protection:

  • Hat, sunglasses, UV-protective clothing.
  • Sunscreen with high SPF. If you're visiting any coastal areas, bring reef-safe sunscreen formulated without harmful chemicals known to be damaging to coral reefs and marine life. Traditional sunscreens often contain ingredients like oxybenzone and octinoxate, which have been found to contribute to coral bleaching and negatively impact marine ecosystems. Look for sunscreens with certifications such as "Reef Safe," "Coral Safe," or "Ocean-Friendly" to ensure they are environmentally friendly .

Medications and First Aid:

  • Any prescription medications you need. (See more below under Health & Wellness)
  • Basic first aid kit with adhesive bandages, antiseptic wipes, pain relievers, etc.

Toiletries:

  • Travel-sized toiletries, including shampoo, conditioner, soap, and toothpaste.
  • Travel towel (quick-drying and compact).
  • Hand sanitizer and wet wipes.
  • A washcloth and carry bag (often not available in hotels abroad).

Electronics:

  • A camera: You’re traveling to see extraordinary scenery and sites. So that you don't miss a single moment, bring a trustworthy camera. Check out our travel photography tips for capturing the best photos of your trips. If you feel comfortable, you can also try the camera on your phone . However, if you want to zoom in or capture moving objects, a camera might be your best bet.
  • Mobile phone.
  • Chargers for each electronic you bring.
  • Travel adapter and/or voltage converter
  • Portable power bank for charging devices on the go.
  • Small travel hair dryer (make sure you have the correct converter and adapter).

Miscellaneous:

  • A travel-friendly daypack or bag to carry your essentials during excursions.
  • Insect repellent.
  • Reusable water bottle. At GET, we’re all about caring for our planet , and with that in mind, we always recommend that you pack a reusable water bottle for your trip. Bringing your own reusable water bottle or asking for tap water at restaurants means you can make a difference by reducing your vacation plastic waste.
  • A small travel alarm.
  • A travel iron if you like your clothes to be pressed.
  • A travel pillow.
  • Scarf or shawl for visiting religious sites or to cover up in conservative areas.
  • Light sleepwear.
  • A new, blank journal to document your trip. Don't know your travel journal style? Find out here !
  • Ziplock bags (storing snacks, toiletries, and keeping things organized).

Remember to pack light and versatile items that can be mixed and matched for different outfits. Laundry facilities are often available, or you can have your clothes laundered at hotels during your trip. It's also a good idea to pack a small bag or backpack to bring on the coach for day trips and excursions, leaving your larger luggage at the hotel.

Electricity

American appliances run on 110-120 volts at 60 Hz, while European appliances run on 220-230 volts at 50 Hz.

As a result, American appliances designed for use in the United States (typically 120 volts at 60 Hz) may not be directly compatible with the higher voltage used in European countries. Plugging a 120-volt appliance into a 220-240-volt outlet without the appropriate voltage converter or transformer can cause damage to the appliance or pose safety risks.

If you plan to bring American appliances to Europe, you will need a voltage converter or transformer to change the voltage to 220-240 volts from 110 volts. Additionally, you will likely need a plug adapter to fit the American-style plug into the European power outlets. All of Europe operates on the same two round-pronged outlets (Type C).

It's important to note that not all appliances are compatible with voltage converters, so it's essential to check the labels or user manuals of your devices before using them with a voltage converter. Some electronic devices, such as laptops, smartphones, and camera chargers, are dual voltage and can support 120V and 220-240V, so they may not require a voltage converter, but a plug adapter will still be necessary.

To avoid any issues with electrical compatibility during your travels, consider purchasing appliances specifically designed for the voltage used in the region you'll be visiting or use appropriate voltage converters and plug adapters to ensure the safe operation of your American appliances in Europe.

We recommend purchasing an adapter with a voltage converter so you can pack less. And to pick up any necessary adapters or converters for your electronic devices before departing on your guided tour and bringing them with you.

Hair Dryers in Your Hotel

Hair dryers are common accessories in hotels. Should you want to bring your own, though, you will need to bring an adapter and voltage converter or make sure it is dual voltage by checking the label for INPUT AC 120V - 240V or a switch that can be set to 125V or 250V. Many devices have this feature, so it's worth checking before you travel. If you need a hair dryer during your trip but can't find one in your hotel room, you can inquire with the hotel staff. Many hotels will be able to provide a hair dryer upon request, either at the front desk or through housekeeping.

Air Conditioning

Air conditioning is commonly available in European hotels, restaurants, and public spaces, especially in major cities and tourist areas, but it is worth noting that the settings will differ from what you are used to in the USA.

However, it's important to note that not all accommodations or historic buildings may have air conditioning, particularly in more traditional or rural settings. Most hotels in Europe can provide a portable fan for additional room cooling if requested. Your Travel Director will be on hand to assist you throughout your trip.

Traveling by coach

Our modern air-conditioned coaches have been selected with your comfort in mind. Your Travel Director will familiarize you with all the onboard features, including a washroom fitted for your convenience and comfort. Regular stops are made to stretch your legs, take refreshments, fill up your water bottles, and use the facilities.

Airport transfers

Airport transfers to and from the airport on the first and last days of your tour are complimentary only if you are traveling on a tour operated by Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, or Luxury Gold, and   your flight times coincide with the shuttle-coach transfer timings. Learn more about Airport Transfers here .

To enable you to personalize your tour experience, you will find a number of Optional Experiences designed to complement the itinerary. These are designed to offer a deeper insight into the culture and character of the areas to be visited and provide some wonderful highlights to your travels. The optional program is designed to let you experience more of what interests you and to get the most from your vacation without replacing or overlapping with anything included in an itinerary.

The majority of Optional Experiences will be offered to you by your Travel Director at the beginning of your trip. Some may be subject to change, depending on the time you are traveling or local circumstances, including weather and days of the week. Your Travel Director will provide further information.

Usually, most Optional Experiences will be priced in the local currency, but please read through the details of individual optional experiences for specific information. Exact payment options will be advised locally by your Travel Director/Local Representative for each Optional Experience, but in many cases, cash, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express are all accepted.

It is recommended to have travel insurance that covers medical expenses while abroad.

In order to ensure a healthy and enjoyable trip, we strongly suggest that you pack a plentiful supply of any medication you may need while on vacation. Here’s what you need to know about traveling with medications .

Prior to traveling, please notify GET of any disability requiring special assistance or any specific dietary needs that you may have, and we will strive to accommodate these.

It's essential to ensure that your routine vaccinations are up-to-date before traveling to any destination. Routine vaccinations may include vaccinations for measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, and influenza.

When traveling with GET, baggage handling at hotels, service charges, and tips for hotel wait staff (for included meals) will all be taken care of by your Travel Director. There are, however, a few instances where individual tipping is welcome.

Local Specialists

It is customary to show appreciation for the insights, stories, and know-how shared with you by the Local Specialists, and we suggest a gratuity equivalent to $1.00-$2.00 USD per person per half day.

Your Coach Driver and Travel Director

The trip cost does not include gratuities for your Travel Director and Driver. At the end of your trip, you may express appreciation to your Travel Director and Driver for their excellent service and the personal attention you received. Gratuities are given at the discretion of each guest, and a suggested amount per person/per day is listed in your travel documents.

For your convenience and ease, there is an option to pre-pay gratuities for the Travel Director and Driver at the time of booking.

Hotel services

It is customary to tip hotel staff for room service delivery if the charge has not already been added to the bill. Where ice machines are not available, and you receive ice from the bar, a small tip to the bartender is always appreciated.

Are you embarking on a two-week adventure through the landscapes of the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg soon? You are in for a sweet treat, and we aren’t just talking about the delectable chocolate that Belgium is known for . Storybook towns, picturesque canals, and cultural marvels await you on your journey! 

From the canals of Amsterdam to the medieval beauty of Luxembourg City, this Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg itinerary is filled with 14 days of unforgettable experiences in the Benelux nations.

About this Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg itinerary 

damrack in amsterdam, one of the landmarks you'll see on this Netherlands Belgium and Luxembourg itinerary

A vacation to the Benelux region of Europe, which encompasses the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg is sure to offer culture, beautiful scenery, and a lot of unique experiences. 

Benelux is an economic alliance between the three neighboring countries. But Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands have shared historical ties and cultural similarities, as well. And given their close proximity and the ease of traveling between the three, many people visit the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg on the same trip.

If you are looking to plan a vacation to this region of Western Europe, we have laid out our ideal 2-week Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg itinerary.

How to get around the Benelux Region

Western Europe is well connected by public transportation. You can easily get around the region using mostly trains and buses. 

Buying a Eurorail Benelux Pass through Rail Europe would likely save you money if you plan to follow this itinerary. 

READ OUR FULL REVIEW OF RAIL EUROPE HERE

If you prefer to road trip in Europe , you can easily get around the three countries by car. However, if you decide to rent a car and drive, be aware that the Netherlands is known for having more cyclists on the road than cars, so be extra cautious and look out for cyclists.  

2-Week Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg itinerary in a nutshell

a map of the belenux region showing the route we followed on this netherlands belgium luxembourg itinerary

Although this 2-week itinerary for Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands takes you to all three countries, you won’t get to see everything this region has to offer in such a short time. 

You could easily spend 2 weeks in the Netherlands alone seeing all the best places to visit in the Netherlands .

But with limited time, here is a breakdown of our Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg itinerary for 14 days. You’ll spend nearly half your time – 6 or 7 days in the Netherlands, and then split your second week between Belgium and Luxembourg. 

  • Days 1-3 – Amsterdam

Day 4 – Giethoorn

  • Days 5-6 – The Hague
  • Days 7-8 – Bruges

Day 9 – Ghent

  • Days 10-11 – Brussels

Day 12 – Dinant

  • Days 13-14 – Luxembourg City

If you have more than 2 weeks in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg, we’ve included a few extra ideas of places to visit that you can add to your itinerary to customize it for your ideal travel style and tailor it for the length of your trip.

Day-by-Day breakdown of this itinerary for the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg

Now that you have a general idea of where you’ll spend your time during this itinerary, let’s break down your travels day by day.

Ideally, you will want to fly into one city and out of another to maximize your time in these three countries. We recommend flying into Amsterdam and out of Brussels, although you could also fly out of Luxembourg City and save yourself the 4 hour train ride back to Brussels from Luxembourg. 

Day 1 – Amsterdam

a canal in amsterdam lined with flower baskets

WHERE TO STAY IN AMSTERDAM: 

  • Art’Otel Amsterdam
  • Hotel Sint Nicolaas

Your first day you’ll basically be familiarizing yourself with Amsterdam. Whether this is the day you land or your first full day in Amsterdam, you’ll likely be a bit jet lagged and don’t want to plan too much. 

Spend this day walking around, stop for a photo at the iconic Damrak , go see Dam Square and the Royal Palace. Be sure to get your first taste of Dutch food by indulging in Stroopwafel and Dutch Pancakes. 

With full tummies, spend the rest of your afternoon leisurely exploring the beautiful Jordaan District , home to some of the most famous bridges in Europe .

End your day with an evening Flagship Canal Tour . It’s a great way to relax and see the city from the water.

Day 2 – Amsterdam

the exterior of the Rijksmuseum

After  breakfast on your second day in Amsterdam, head directly to the Anne Frank House , where you will tour the hidden home where young Anne Frank and her family hid for 2 years from the Nazis. Be sure to book your tickets in advance because this powerful museum sells out.

From there, head to the Bloemenmarkt on the Singel Canal. This is the city’s famous floating flower market. Every Monday through Saturday, vendors sell colorful tulips, both fresh and wooden, as well as Dutch souvenirs and other trinkets. Unless you are visiting the Netherlands in spring, this is the closest you’ll get to seeing the gorgeous tulips the country is known for.

After the Bloemenmarkt, grab some lunch and head to the museum district, where you’ll find Rijksmuseum , the Van Gogh Museum and Vondelpark . Like for the Anne Frank House, if you want to visit either of Amsterdam’s most popular art museums, you’ll want to book your tickets ahead of time . 

Day 3 – Day trip to Zaanse Schans and Volendam

dutch windmills along the river in zaanse schans

Your third day on this Benelux itinerary will take you to two of the most popular day trip destinations from Amsterdam .

Your first stop will be the charming windmill village of Zaanse Schans .

Located just 15-20 minutes from Amsterdam Centraal by train, there are lots of fun things to do in Zaanse Schans like the Verkade Chocolate Experience at the Zaans Museum , touring a working cheese farm, and going inside a working Dutch windmill.

After a lovely morning in Zaanse Schans, grab lunch and then make your way to Volendam. Volendam is a quaint fishing village about 20 kilometers north of Amsterdam.

a quiet canal street in volendam

You’ll want to spend some time strolling through the cute streets in the oldest part of the village center. Wander along the harbor, admiring the view and taking in the atmosphere in the town, and stop into one of the restaurants to try smoked eel, a specialty in Volendam.

If you’re looking to commemorate your trip, you can also have your photo taken in traditional Dutch costumes, including wooden clogs! While it may be considered a bit touristy, it is one of the best things to do in Volendam !

While you can get to both Zaanse Schans and Volendam by public transport, you have to take the train back to Amsterdam from Zaanse Schans and then transfer to a bus to go to Volendam. This is one of those instances where a guided tour works best and saves you about an hour of commute time.

WHERE TO STAY IN GIETHOORN: 

  • De Dames Van De Jonge Hotel
  • Gieters Mooist

A day trip to Giethoorn from Amsterdam is a wonderful way to spend your fourth day in the Netherlands. However, if you want to experience the “village with no roads” without crowds of other visitors, we recommend you spend one night in Giethoorn. 

Getting to Giethoorn takes a bit of effort, as you’ll either have to rent a car, book a guided tour , or have to take a train to Zwolle or Steenwijk and then transfer to a bus. If you are traveling by public transport, it will take you at least 2 hours to get to Giethoorn. 

Once there, you’ll want to rent your own whisper boat and let yourself get lost in the enchanting canals that wind around thatched-roof homes, beneath tall canopies of trees, and under small pedestrian bridges. It is such a peaceful and serene experience, particularly after leaving the bustling streets of Amsterdam.

Day 5 – The Hague

madurodam in the hague

WHERE TO STAY IN THE HAGUE: Babylon Hotel

Whether you spend the night in Giethoorn or head back to Amsterdam on day four, on your fifth day on your Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg  itinerary, you’ll want to pack up and head to The Hague. 

The third largest city in the Netherlands and the seat of power for the Dutch Royal Family, there are a lot of things to do in The Hague for families . 

Spend your first day exploring the Old City, Binnenhof Castle , and visiting Madurodam , a park with miniature replicas of Dutch buildings and landmarks.

Day 6 – The Hague (or a day trip to Rotterdam, Delft, or Gouda)

On day six, spend a fun day at the beach, walking along the Scheveningen Pier , ride the ferris wheel , and visit the SEA Life Aquarium . 

If the beach isn’t your scene or you’re visiting during the cold months, you can easily day trip to Rotterdam to see the Cube Houses, visit the charming city of Delft, known for their ceramics that make great souvenirs from the Netherlands, or visit the town of Gouda – the birthplace of one of the most famous Dutch cheeses. 

Day 7 – Bruges

WHERE TO STAY IN BRUGES: 

  • Hotel de Castillion
  • Hotel Het Gheestelic Hof

On day seven, bid farewell to the Netherlands and take the morning train from Den Haag Centraal to Bruges, Belgium . Your train ride will take approximately 3 hours, with a couple transfers in cities like Rotterdam, Antwerp and/or Ghent. 

Many people choose a day trip to Bruges from Ghent or Brussels, but this enchanting city is well worth spending a night or two. It is especially magical at night and early in the morning before the day trip crowds descend.

However, if you prefer to stay in fewer hotels and pack up and move around less, you can easily take day trips to both Bruges and Ghent from Brussels or even book a guided day tour to both cities .

Spend time wandering through the colorful Market Square , climb the Belfry for awesome views of the city, visit the Basilica of the Holy Blood to see the holy relic believed to contain the blood of Jesus Christ. 

After a leisure lunch in Market Square, take a canal cruise and admire the swans at Minnewater Lake . There are so many things to do in Bruges, you could definitely spend a couple days here.

Day 8 – Bruges

On day 8, wake up and walk the cobbled streets of the historic center Bruges before they get too crowded. This is the perfect time to take photos of this UNESCO World Heritage site that looks like a page from a storybook. 

You’ll want to wander through the serene Begijnhof , currently home to the Benedictine nuns, but previously was the home of beguines – a group of widowed women who chose not to remarry and live a holy life in a setting similar to a convent.

After a walk through the Begijnhof, stop in for Belgian waffles somewhere, and then take a group tour De Halve Maan Brewery – the only brewery in the world that transports its beer through a pipeline to the bottling plant. You’ll learn how their beer is made, transported, and then of course, you’ll want to sample one!

Church of Our Lady in Bruges

Finally, visit the Church of Our Lady . This beautiful church contains one of Michelangelo’s most famous sculptures, Madonna and Child .

Spend your evening taking in the beauty of this town before you have to say goodbye. Follow your nose into any of the countless chocolate shops and buy whichever truffles your heart desires! Or, take a chocolate making class and learn the art of making the country’s famous chocolates.

Gravensteen Castle in Ghent

WHERE TO STAY IN GHENT:

  • Hotel Harmony
  • Hotel Carlton

Ghent is located about halfway between Bruges and Brussels. It is only 22 minutes by train. 

Begin your morning at Graslei and Korenlei, picturesque canals lined with historic guild houses that reflect on the water. Wander through the cobblestone streets and discover landmarks such as Saint Bavo’s Cathedral , home to the famous Ghent Altarpiece. 

Make your way to the medieval fortress, Gravensteen Castle . This castle, surrounded by a moat, will make you feel like you’ve been transported back in time to an age of knights and court jesters. 

For lunch, indulge in local delicacies at one of the many eateries in the Patershol neighborhood, known for its quaint atmosphere and diverse culinary offerings. Then spend your afternoon at the Museum of Fine Arts or take a leisurely boat tour along the canals to admire Ghent’s architecture from a different perspective. 

As the day winds down, enjoy the sunset over the city then finish your day with dinner at one of the riverside restaurants, savoring Belgian specialties like moules-frites. 

Day 10 – Brussels

grand place in brussels

WHERE TO STAY IN BRUSSELS: Ibis Hotel Brussels

On day 10 of your 2-week Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg itinerary, you’ll take a short train ride to the Belgian capital of Brussels where you’ll spend 2 days .

After dropping your luggage off at the hotel, take a stroll through the Galeries Royales Saint -Hubert before making your way to Grand Place.

Grand Place is Brussels’ main public square. Surrounded on all four sides with beautiful historic buildings crowned with opulent gold accents, the square is not only picturesque, it is typically teeming with activity. 

A short walk from the square, you’ll find one of Europe’s most famous statues – Manneken Pis . Pause to admire this 24-inch statue of a little boy peeing in a fountain before continuing your journey through the city. Be sure to stop somewhere for Belgian Frites or waffles. You won’t tire of these two foods in Belgium!

Take time finding the numerous murals of comics scattered around the city center. You can buy a fun digital game to guide you through Brussel’s Comic Book Route – escape room style!

Make your way to Mont des Arts or head to Place Sainte-Catherine for dinner. This plaza is another area lined with restaurants and always bustling with activity.

Day 11 – Brussels

Mont des Arts, one of the most famous photo sports in Brussels

On day 11, you’ll want to take a brief walk to Mont des Arts, if you didn’t visit it on your first day in Brussels. This is one of the most photographed spots in Brussels, and if you get there in the morning, the historic site, which sits between Grand Place and the Royal Palace, won’t be near as crowded.

If you’re visiting from July through late September, head to the Royal Palace next. You can only tour the official palace during those months, as it is the administrative offices of the Belgian monarchy and closed to the public the rest of the year. 

Across from the Royal Palace, Parc de Bruxelles , is the largest green space in the city and is a beautiful, shady park with walking trails, fountains, and outdoor cafes where you can stop for a mid-morning snack. 

Atomium in Brussels

In the afternoon, head to the Atomium . It is about a 15 minute metro ride from the city center. This massive public art sculpture shaped like an atom is actually a building. You’ll definitely want to book tickets to go inside , as the interior is often compared to the inside of a spaceship. 

After visiting Atomium, head to Miniature Europe . Like Madurodam, this miniature world has 350 tiny replicas of buildings and monuments from 90 different European cities.

WHERE TO STAY IN DINANT: Les Terrasses de Sax

Your time in Belgium is winding down. On day 12, head east to Dinant. When you arrive at the train station, stroll along the riverbank and cross the Charles de Gaulle Bridge adorned with saxophones, paying homage to Adolphe Sax, the inventor of the saxophone who was born in Dinant. 

Stop off at your hotel to store your bags, before heading to the Citadel of Dinant . Perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Meuse River, the citadel provides a stunning introduction to the town below. 

Continue your day by visiting the Collegiate Church of Notre-Dame , an impressive Gothic masterpiece with its onion-domed bell tower. 

Enjoy a leisurely lunch at one of the riverside cafes while taking in the scenic surroundings. 

In the afternoon, cruise along the Meuse River or visit the Maison de Monsieur Sax , a museum dedicated to the life and work of Adolphe Sax. 

As the sun sets, find a cozy spot along the river to enjoy the town’s illuminated beauty on your last night in Belgium.

Day 13 – Luxembourg City

WHERE TO STAY IN LUXEMBOURG CITY: 

  • Hotel le Place d’Armes
  • Park Inn by Radisson

Your final two days on this Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg itinerary will be spent in the tiniest country in the Benelux region. Take the train from Dinant to Luxembourg city where you will spend your first day exploring the medieval charm of the beautiful, clean, and safe capital. 

After getting your luggage situated at your hotel, take a leisure stroll and cross the Pont Adolphe , one of the most picturesque bridges in the city. From the bridge, you’ll have a great view of Constitution Square and the two-tiered city in the background. 

Walk by and admire Constitution Square and the Monument of Remembrance before checking out Place d’Armes . This central square in the new city is a great place to grab breakfast or lunch, depending on what time you arrive in Luxembourg City. 

You can tour the Grand Ducal Palace if you are visiting during summer. Like in Brussels, the palace is only open during certain times of the year. You’ll also want to stop inside Notre Dame Cathedral and explore the crypt below before heading down to the lower level of the city and into the casemates. 

The Lower City Of Luxembourg Known As The Grund.

Touring the Bock Casemates is one of the best things to do in Luxembourg City . The new city is built on a network of underground tunnels called the casemates. These tunnels date back to 1745 when medieval fortifications were built as a stronghold to protect the city. 

After exploring the casemates, continue to the lower portion of the city which is the historic quarter of Luxembourg city. This preserved area is a great place to visit both during the day or night.

Day 14 – Luxembourg castles day trip

Vianden Castle in Luxembourg

On your final day of your Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg itinerary, you’ll head out of the city on a guided day tour to see the beautiful nature and some of the castles that the small country is known for. 

Explore scenic trails, vast forests and ancient ruins before heading to Vianden Castle . Located in the northern part of the country along the German border, this imposing castle overlooks the town of Vianden and is one of the largest fortified castles west of the Rhine River. Set against Luxembourg’s stunning natural scenery, it is often considered one of the most beautiful castles in the world. 

After your day trip, head back to Luxembourg City for a final night, or to make your way back to Brussels for a flight out the next morning. Wherever you spend your final night, you’re sure to sit back and reflect on all the experiences and memories made on your trip!

Best time of year to travel to the Benelux region

The Benelux region is a great year-round destination. The holiday markets, particularly in Belgium and Luxembourg make it a great place to spend Christmas in Europe .

Of course, spring a popular time to visit as the weather becomes milder, and the landscapes burst into vibrant colors. Tulip season in the Netherlands, particularly in April, is a highlight. 

Summer, which is when we personally visited, is the peak tourist season, and it brings warm temperatures and longer days. It’s ideal for exploring the cities and enjoying outdoor cafes and activities.

Fall offers crisp weather, a jacket will be needed, but the crowds begin to thin out compared.

Tips for following this Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands itinerary

If you like this Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg itinerary for 2 weeks, here are a few travel tips that will make following this travel route easier.

Travel with minimal luggage

our backpack and rolling bag on our trip

If you plan to move around a lot and switch hotels every few days, it is imperative that you travel with minimal luggage. We typically carry backpacks like this one or a carry-on rolling bag, like this one .

Having smaller, more portable bags makes getting on and off trains and navigating to your hotels from the train stations much easier. 

Book hotels close to the train stations

We typically book hotels that are within a 10 minute walk from the train station. This allows us to drop off our luggage at our hotel shortly after arriving in a new city and begin exploring luggage-free.

Store luggage at your hotel when you arrive in a new location

Most hotels will allow you to store your luggage for the day if you arrive before your room is ready to check in. Keep in mind, if you book an Airbnb or a guest house, this isn’t always an option. So, that is something to consider when selecting your accommodations.

Don’t like moving around as much? Consider day trips

If the idea of packing up and switching hotels every few days sounds exhausting and unappealing you can still follow this basic itinerary and limit your hotels to 2 or 3. 

The Hague and Giethoorn can both be done as day trips from Amsterdam. So, you could spend the first 6-7 nights in Amsterdam and take short journeys out to explore much of the small country of the Netherlands.

Best guided day trips from Amsterdam

  • Zaanse Schans and Volendam
  • Keukenhof Tulip Farm (spring)
  • The Hague, Rotterdam and Delft

Additionally, you could spend another 7 days in Brussels and take day trips to Bruges, Ghent, and even Dinant and Luxembourg City, although that is admittedly, a long day trip.

Best guided day trips from Brussels

  • Bruges and Ghent
  • Bruges only
  • Dinant and Luxembourg

Other places to visit if you have more time

If you have additional time, you could easily add cities like Rotterdam, Utrecht, and Antwerp to your itinerary. There are so many great places to visit in the Netherlands , Belgium and Luxembourg! 

Is a 2 week trip to the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg enough?

a mother and daughter walking through the streets of Bruges Belgium

Two weeks is a good amount of time to see the highlights on this Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg itinerary, however the amount of time you’ll have in each country will be limited. 

If you love museums and culture, you could definitely spend a lot more time in the large cities exploring the many museums offered. History lovers could spend more time in Belgium exploring the multiple World War monuments and battlefields. 

Additionally, if you simply love to travel slowly, have more time to relax, sleep in, take your kids to playgrounds, join walking tours, and do less in a day, you could either extend this itinerary to allow more time in each destination, or dedicated the full 2 weeks to one single country, like the Netherlands.    

If you’re limited to 2 weeks in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg, just prioritize the places and experiences that matter most to you.
